What Was Measured?

What percentage of pregnant women in the HMO began prenatal care during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy?

Why Is It Important?

Regular check-ups are important for pregnant women. During prenatal visits, your doctor can look for problems, like high blood pressure, which can cause problems for you and your baby. You can also learn how to eat right, get the right vitamins and exercise to protect your health and your baby’s.
